FUNNY YET SAD
how one side is gold and the flip side foil
Funny how the things we once cherished are become anathematized
by the ideas we now hold as divine
Funny how we made jest of the others only to become
what they became to us.
Funny how we unconsciously slide into same boxed category
of once-upon-a-time kinda story.
Funny how we take same history classes
and repeat same historic mistakes
as if, to say, we were oblivious of them.
Funny how we condemn ‘them’
but later become ‘them’
in a nick of time.
Funny how we sit and point fingers at the others
only to fall into same ditch they’d entered
Funny how we condemned them
but sit to dine and wine with them
Funny how we cast aspersions at one
but find closure in the other side of same coin
Funny how we chuckle at their stereotypes
but rage with fiery vexation when others hold faux opinions of us
Funny how life plays a fast one on us
like the wind unveils the cockerels anus
Funny how funny I think these funny things are,
so funny I cringe when you laugh
